NASA has found water molecules moving on the Moon.
the Observations can provide a better understanding of the opportunities for the exploitation of water on the Moon, writes NASA, according to Science.dk.
'the Results help us to understand the Lunar water cycle, and it will eventually help us learn about the availability of water on the Moon, which will be used in future missions,' says Amanda Hendrix, a senior scientist at the Planetary Science Institute and the lead author behind the study, in the press release, according to Science.dk.
It is previously established that the moonstone is hiding in the water molecules, which probably has been there since the Moon was created. Just as there is found water molecules on the Lunar surface, which may be created by meteors.
The new study is the first that tells something about how the water molecules move during the day period on the Moon.

the Discovery is made on the basis of data from NASA's space probe Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO).
It is through the instrument, the Lyman Alpha Mapping Project (LAMP), which measure the ultraviolet light that has found evidence for water molecules.
the Researchers have thus analyzed the different variations of the ultraviolet light from the Lunar surface, from 2009 to 2016.

Here it could be seen that the vandmolekylernes volume and movement changed in the course of the day.
At about noon on the Moon, where the temperature is highest, and månestenen gives off the most water, started the water molecules to move towards colder areas, where there is less sunlight.
When the temperature gets lower, turn the water molecules back to the Lunar surface.
the Study is published in Geophysical Research Letters.
